Putting My Feet In The Dirt July Prompt: #14 Don’t Tell Me It’s Fate

He told her

it was fate

that they were meant to be together

it was Fate that brought them together

it didn’t matter who got hurt, what

was lost, how long it would take to feel the glory

of what they should have had

what they were entitled too have

all along.

She told him

it was Fate

that they shared that kiss in the open

for all the world to see

no matter what anybody thought!

To Hell with them all! She cried

as he gave her his earing

and she gave him her charm,

they should have had this life

they were entitled to this life

all along!

It was Fate! She roared with passion.

One day, Fate watched them both

from her place in the tree

outside of their window

with her murder of crows

fluttering and resting on the branches below her feet.

Fate titled her head and watched his heart stop

Fate watched her trip over his body and sail down the stairs

as she ran for the phone to never ask for help

and Fate said:

” Now THAT was me. ‘

The City In The Sky

July Writing Prompt: # 2 City in the sky

Photo by Mat Brown on

Ever have one of those days

when you don’t want to be told where to go

so you just sit there and go nowhere

until you relize

It’s one of those days

when it’s not that being told what to do that bothers you

what bothers you is being told how to get there


how you should look, the clothes you should wear, the expression on your face modified for mass consumption.

There are some days when I just want to keep moving

and the only sound I want to hear

is the wind in my ears

until I reach that City In The Sky

where it rains when it wants to rain and it snows when it can and none of the houses look the same and the lawns are a little overgrown and dogs bark and cats chase birds and Werewolves dance with Zombies in wild abandon in the streets at sunrise and your Pizza Delivery is always on time.
